Summary

Career development and vocational choice theories have been criticized as inaccurate and not useful as models for the practice of career counseling. It may be that theorists have not extended their theories into practice concepts, since current literature is lacking in attempts to relate theory to practice. Because of this void in theory-practice information, practitioners have relied on personal-intuitive and traditional trait-and-factor approaches. Career development and vocational choice theory and its applications should be taught to students of career counseling. Career counselors should work to generate better theories. Practitioners and students need to consult theory to enact eclectic approaches to career counseling. Students must examine their concepts of work, motivation, and development. An eclectic theory of career development and a counseling approach can be generated that would enable practitioners to provide remedial assistance when needed and to assist clients in: (1) making initial career choices; (2) making career change choices; (3) developing career adjustment strategies; and (4) identifying the role of work in their lives. A three-page list of references concludes the paper.
